Re: You didn't like my explanation below?
check the oil only when the car is hot after driving,
let it sit for 5-min on level ground after shutting
OFF, parked on level ground. If you need oil
add only MOBIL 1 0w/40 , or BMW Synthetic 5w/30 oil.
red plastic level reading area with 2 ball marking
low and FULL level
you need to clean off the red area very well,
stick the stick in fully, hold for 3 seconds,
pull it out and read holding the stick level,
hard to see the top line of dirty oil
against the red plastic - I know - need lots of
light and good eyes
if there is NO OIL reading on the stick?
you'll need a MIN. of 2-quarts to start with!
